“Well worth a return visit”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

Eight years ago we made a visit to this restaurant and vowed to return, a risky business as sometimes places are never as good as you remember them. This was not the case here, located right in the heart of the harbour and directly over the water, from the outside a beach shack, and inside a rustic charm. The food is great and good value, our fish a little on the cool side though, the prawns were delicious. What makes this place is the service and atmosphere, Ivan our server was brilliant, explaining the menu and wines, attentive and friendly, making us feel very welcomed. If you are in Mossel Bay, you should give this a try.

My fish was a bit overcooked, but prices were keen, staff were great and teh location, on the harbour wall, with views of coast and hills, and seagulls, made it a lovely lunch

“Go there!”
Reviewed March 11, 2014

The waiters and waitresses are very kind. It's on the harbour and you have a view of the beach and the rest of the town. It gets a bit windy but you have a choice of sitting outside under cover or inside. The food isn't very expensive and great quality.
